Shining the spotlight on the Chevrolet Trax

The Chevrolet Trax is nearing its global debut, which is presenting drivers with a sports utility car with a twist.

People will have the chance to get their first peek at the newest addition of the American car maker's expansive family at the Paris Motor Show in September.

While details are thin on the ground until then – only the designers can get an up-close look at the Trax at the moment – nuggets of information are beginning to slip through.

For one, it has been revealed that Chevrolet is aiming to make its newest vehicle a sports utility which offers 'on-demand' four-wheel-drive if and when desired.

The fact that the Trax measures just 1,776mm wide and 4,248mm long also makes it a small car, though its 358-litre boot shows that there is plenty of space where it counts.

On the technical side of things, the Trax also comes complete with a hill-start assist function to prevent the car from rolling backwards after being stationary on a climb.

The full cover will be taken off the Chevrolet Trax in Paris next month, before leaving the production line in spring 2013.
